Bill Davis

I loved the clawhammer sound on this CD, mixed with traditional Folk, Mountain sound. James Leva is a wonderful, talented artist who has surrounded himself with very talented people on this CD.

Allen Hoppes

Winkin' Eye
This is a really enjoyable CD of traditional and traditional-style songs. I loved James Leva's and Al Tharps's work in the band Freewill Savages and this CD, while more basic than the Freewill Savages style, is equally enjoyable. I'm really happy with Winkin' Eye.

My Husband and I thoroughly enjoy this CD. There is not one song on the CD that we skip or pass up while listening. It's a great combination of folk, bluegrass and Celtic sounds. We are very pleased with this CD and will be looking forward to seeing them again live as well as looking for new releases.
